Default Got to meet Mark Martin today

So he came to town for a small meet and greet with autographs and pictures. We were in line about ten minutes. I watched him race NASCAR for 20 years. And I knew he was a small guy, but damn he is small.

It was still pretty fuckin cool to have a chance to talk to him for a few minutes. And his PR rep was nice enough to take pictures for everyone. I donít ever remember anyone not liking Mark, other than him being too nice on the racerack.

Yeah he was very appreciative of his fan base when he raced. Now that he has stepped back from NASCAR racing, the appreciation is probably tenfold now. I asked him if he was enjoying retirement, and he looked at me and smiled as he replied yes very much.

There was that time at Talladega when he wrecked Jimmy Johnson on the pace lap. Wasn't too fond of him then. But generally speaking, he's a very likable munchkin.

Yep. He turned left all of a sudden. No idea how that happens.

Not popular like Mark Martin but just ask Juan Pablo how you hit a jet dryer.

So far I haven't met any driver but have a trailer from Dale Jarrett (previous owner bought it from the team).
